“True samaritans - helped us when we totally stuck!”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

We ran out of petrol in Glenrowan, didn't know there was a service centre only 4km away. We could possibly have made that but instead had pulled into Glenrowan searching for petrol, and then couldn't get going again. Jenny from this wonderful motel kindly drove us to the service centre, waited for us to purchase a can and petrol, and drove us back to our car again! So very lucky to have come across this wonderful lady in her pristine motel - we will come back and stay at your motel Jenny.

Recently stayed at this motel again. As good as ever - excellent service and the rooms have been recently painted . Such a convenient spot for visiting the local wineries in Milawa, King Valley and Glenrowan. We visited Bright this time - stunning countryside -a wonderful rural break.

Glenrowan's place in our history is legendary. It may have had a violent point in its history over 130 years ago, but today you can enjoy a peaceful nights rest. This was the site of our most famous bush-ranger, Ned Kelly's last stand and what a stand it was! The motel is centrally located to the historic sites which are easily accessible on foot, bicycle or vehicle.

We found the rooms to be clean and comfortable and we enjoyed a good night's rest after an easy bicycle ride around the town which proved a good way to see things up close in a relatively short time. We also enjoyed an excellent evening meal at the hotel which is right next door to the motel.

There's a bakery just a few doors south of the motel which has a very good breakfast menu. It opens at 6am, everyday.

We did not use it, but the motel has a swimming pool. The train line which played an important part in the final demise of Ned Kelly and his gang is active and nearby. We certainly heard the occasional train, but this did not bother us. In fact, for us it adds quite a romantic quality to this historic and well kept town.

Friendly welcoming staff. Clean simple facilities. Good value for money. Had a few issues with the shower, but quickly dealt with. Definitely a family business and very suitable for visiting families. Pool is a bonus. Great location, right next to hotel (very good food) and near the museum and siege site. Would recommend.

We have stayed at the Glenrowan Kelly Country Motel a number of times when visiting the northern king valley area in Victoria.

The rooms are always clean, comfortable and the owners are always accommodating when it comes to assisting with any of our questions from directions to other town ships around the area to recommending wineries. You can tell they are lived in the area for quite awhile.. you can never go past local knowledge!

Would recommend this motel to anyone who is looking for budget-friendly accommodation without sacrificing the desire for a clean and comfortable space to rest.
